RC Flight Sim Project

Hi all,
I have an idea to make a Radio control aircraft flight simulator for Oculus Rift.
Progress is going well, I am quite pleased with the way the game appears in the rift so far. Actually I know that there are a few Radio Control Sim packages out there but none for VR to my knowledge, I hope this will gives model aircraft fans an added feeling of reality, as it does for me. Cool, now I don't need to worry about crashing my plane, or repairing it, whohoo!

I am happy to announce:
The game is released today on Desura, find it at http://www.desura.com/games/re-flight/#4404198

First level Web PLayer demo is free to try on http://gamejolt.com/games/strategy-sim/rc-flight/49417/ , note this is a demo, only the first level will work, just to give it a go πŸ™‚

Added to Steam Greenlight, URL: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=386512544
Would appreciate your vote here.

More aircraft, options and locations will be added. The Oculus Rift Version will be updated too.
Thanks for looking and voting.

Gameplay Video [updated]:



[Updated]
Added: Engine Smoke, FPV camera view, better physics and aircraft speed, engine audio,intro page, more scenery.
This could be quite cool to practice with and not trashing your beginner models.

Sure, I can add that on the to do list , I guess it'll mean adding another OVR camera on the plane and having an option switch cameras. Good idea anyway, I mean we're wearing the headset googles already right πŸ™‚

Slightly longer gameplay video:



I guess this is a big no no, but how or is it possible at all to not show the Oculus Rift health warning on the star of the scene, it gets in the way when the game starts!

I updated the initial post with a downloadable demo, hope you can give it a go. You have a great idea, I know the flite test guys from youtube and watch their videos all the time. How do I get in touch with them I wonder? Any recommendations?

I sent Filtetest an email, wonder what they'll say/think about it, or if they have a headset to test with.. thanks again for the suggestion.
